Coconut Macaroons

I know I promised a giveaway this week and I will be posting it first thing tomorrow morning, but in the mean time, here is a super yummy, super easy recipe for coconut macaroons.

Coconut Macaroons
  • 1- 14oz. bag sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1- 14oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 large egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
preheat oven to 325 degrees. line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

in a large bowl, combine coconut, milk and vanilla. in a separate bowl combine egg whites and salt and beat with an electric mixer on high speed until medium-firm peaks form when you lift the beaters, about 1-2 minutes. gently fold the egg whites into the coconut mixture.

scoop out cookies onto parchment lined cookie sheets using a cookie scoop. bake for 22-25 minutes or until lightly golden brown. cool.

*makes 2 dozen
